It’s been a tough few days if I am honest. Hence I have not posted much.
My little one became quite sick and needed taking care of. His was full of snot and cold and was just miserable.
I usually don’t mind colds, but I was anxious and worried as his nose was so blocked he couldn’t breathe through it. He managed to end up sleeping on his tummy which allowed him to breathe but I never thought I would be so worried about him. Luckily it didn’t last very long and he is mostly over it now and back to his normal self, it does just get a bit scary though when you worry they can’t breathe. I found that baby olbas oil helped a lot. It also helped me and my partner breathe a lot better (and I personally love the smell.)
I also never seem to understand how such a tiny human can produce so much snot! We went through 4 muslins in a day! He absolutely hates his face being wiped, cries every time. But if I didn’t it would just get all crusty and ten times worse so unfortunately it had to be done.
It took a few days but we are out the other end and he actually doesn’t mind being on his tummy now as a result! So all in all, not the end of the world, but quite an anxiety provoking time.
I think with it being a lovely bank holiday weekend helped as well. The heat helped snuff out the cold and my bubs is now currently asleep in the garden on such a beautiful day.
I’m sure there will be more colds to come in the winter.
He is also 7 months old today. 7 Months! How time has flown by and how big he is. I can’t believe that it has gone so quick. I’m going to feel very sad and excited when he starts moving and when he gets teeth. No more putting him in one place and going to the loo to come back to unmoved baby. No more gummy smiles with drool coming out the mouth (or in my case, being given a old man smile with a scrunched up face.)
